A short recap of yesterday's Thing That Happened:

The French version of magicthegathering.com had a gif embedded in their hero banner (a hero banner is a fancy industry term for Large Image At The Top Of A Website) for a Standard Gauntlet. The gif featured popular Standard cards like Torrential Gearhulk, Glorybringer, and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. They also slipped in three Hour of Devastation cards: Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh, Samut, the Tested, and Bontu's Last Reckoning. It was almost certainly an accident; these are the types of cards that are generally revealed to the general public via content. Some of the cards sold this week are a reaction to those cards. Here we go.

Glory-Bound Initiate is a powerful card currently masquerading as a role-player, albeit one way above replacement-level. Its most recent showing is in a Modern deck that made Top 8 at Grand Prix Kobe last weekend. if Glory-Bound Initiate can Top 8 a Modern GP, odds are it's underutilized in Standard.

Yeah, I know bouncing around the list can be hard to follow, but here's the deal: I'm grouping cards that go together together. Cards that go together end up all over the list. You understand.

Fatal Push! I LOVE writing about Fatal Push! It's so fun! Did you know that Fatal Push is good in every frigging format? It's true! Isn't that great? YAY

Is Cascading Cataracts really that much better than Crystal Quarry? I don't really know. These are likely getting picked up for Commander purposes; Commander 2016's cycle of four-color commanders, for example, are way easier to cast when Cascading Cataracts is part of the equation.

The spike in Dark Intimations sales is a result of the Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh reveal. An extra loyalty on Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh equals a clean 14 damage over two turns, which is almost 75% of an opponent's starting life total. And it'll exist alongside Aetherworks Marvel, barring bans. So that'll be neat!

For what feels like the billionth week in a row, the full-art Amonkhet basics have settled near the top of the Super Sellers. There's not much less to say about them; they looks great and are a bit cheaper (at the moment) than full-art lands traditionally are.
